Yes, a thoughtful treatment for a desert image, Jeff. The feel of the arching lines above the scene especially reminds me of the way the air looks when one is in such a dry landscape and the heat radiates from the ground in waves through the air. #8016697

I have been to Egypt twice over the years, both times in October. Egypt is a really fascinating place to visit and experience. The mystique is real and beyond words to describe! Everyone, whether it is in the hotel or those living in the villages, is always willing to share their understanding of the history of Egypt and her people. This is a digital creation from an old image of what the Fourth Dynasty in Egypt may have looked like! Effects created with PSE7 + NIK filters. Original is in the comments section.

Exif: Model: Nikon SUPER COOLSCAN 5000 ED
